I may have to give that a try.  It is certainly less expensive than a full screen replacement.

It's definitely worth a try at that price, just have to wait a long time as they're from China.

It's really sturdy and holds very securely to your stock screen, a solid piece of kit.

I have one of those! It's cheap Chinese crap but hey, it's not a safety item and it works! Why buy a wunderlich for 10 times the price? At least with this if it doesn't work you've only lost about 20 bucks 😁

Just an observation: 

I was farting around with the bikes and did a little back to back ride; TW200 with a Jimbo shield vs CB500X with a short stock shield:  ~55MPH the TW has a less ragged air and is more comfortable and has quieter air flow-wise than the CBX, I kid you not.

Because the TW doesn't have all the pretty bodywork causing turbulence and low-pressure zones behind the windscreen.

Ok. I checked to see if I posted this before.

Givi windscreen, Palmer mount. Added DIY wind mover-aroundinators which I call "DarthSchmader(c)" after an old Operations Officer of mine...

Coroplast and zip ties (black zip ties add 1hp)


The middlepart adjusts up and downish.

We've discussed this on here before. Zip ties aren't good for extra power. They are good for 5mph on the top speed, 10 downhill with wind assistance.  :080:

I have used the Wunderlich wind deflector on a number of bikes, including an R1200GS and VStrom 650, and found it to be very effective. When my 500X eventually arrives, and if I am not happy with the stock screen, my first action will be to install the Wunderlich device.

Growing up is for people who have nothing better to do with their lives.
